Today is the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of fall in the Southern Hemisphere.
Wherever you are, it’s a time for new beginnings. A time to set intentions. And it’s the perfect time to release anything that no longer serves you.
In my last blog, I wrote about clutter and how the state of your home reflects the state of your mind. Or the state of your mind reflects the state of your home. It works both ways. If you change one, the other will automatically change. Maybe not overnight, but it will change.
This time I want to delve a little deeper into spring cleaning your thoughts.
We all carry around thoughts and beliefs that are not for our highest good. Even if only on occasion. Although for many of us it happens on a daily basis, whether we realize it or not.
We fear the worst. We tell ourselves untrue stories about our past that are creating an undesirable present and future. We judge, even if we don’t think we do. We think negative thoughts. We tell ourselves lies about our worth, our appearance, our gifts and talents. We beat ourselves up over a seeming mistake we made or something we said that we regret afterward. We believe that we’ve failed in any or all areas of our lives.
Let’s let that go right now. Let’s spring clean our thoughts and bring in ones that serve us and our highest good. If you’ve been in a pattern of negative thinking for a long time, it’s not going to be easy. I’m not gonna lie to you. But it is possible. And it is very necessary.
You can even imagine a little broom in your mind sweeping out all those old, unwanted thoughts. Each time you have one, visualize clearing them out.
Or some people prefer to say out loud or silently, “Stop!” when those thoughts creep in.
Maybe you’ll choose to wear a rubber band around your wrist and snap it every time you have a negative thought or judgment.
Whatever method works for you, remember to replace that unwanted, mind-cluttering thought with one that is better. If you don’t, the old thoughts will come right back. You have to fill your mind with positive, uplifting beliefs. Fake it if you have to at the beginning.
If you keep this up, your entire life will change.
By the way, once you’ve gotten your thinking in order, a space clearing is the next step to complete the process. After getting rid of the mental clutter, you will want to remove the energetic clutter that’s still left behind. Visit my space clearing page for information or to schedule your clearing.
